Faculty, staff and students can collaborate with their peers on and off campus. Members of the University community have found many creative ways to use the platform. In some cases, they were able to really streamline processes and in others... more»

What needs improvement?

Support for larger files. Improvements in speed - Box's high level of security impacts performance, especially when compared with other similar services. While it's understandable, it's annoying.

What is most valuable?

* File sharing with collaborators not on the same domain with offline access from multiple devices: I work on many projects that are multi-organizational, such as with customers, suppliers, or acquisitions. * Being able to securely invite,... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We have complex bids with tight deadlines. This involves partners/suppliers and key staff who can work offline, such as on the train, and then sync up their files later when they have WIFI coverage. This allows faster responses and stronger... more»

What needs improvement?

Tasks and comments could be easier to see, report, search, and manage. I think it would benefit from a task full screen with list and sort functionality, then similarly a comments screen with list/filter/sort. So, rather than looking at... more»

What is most valuable?

* IFRAME Widget (To publish documents on another web page). Most of the best CMSs don’t offer any good DMS features. Not even many products as an add-on or plug-in. So why not take one of the best DMS (box) on the market and integrate (embed)... more»

How has it helped my organization?

There is no easier way to publish a (new) document to the web (via the IFRAME widget). Just put the file in the right place!

What needs improvement?

Data privacy, regarding where to store your data: Offering several transparent(!) options (where to store my data and whether to sync back or not and where to sync) regarding the local law situations (USA, EU, Switzerland!) would increase the... more»

What needs improvement?

Like all cloud platforms, there are always areas of improvement around sync to local devices. We are very EXCITED about the soon to be released Box Desktop for streamed file content. We are looking to beta the tool!

What do you think of Box?

Valuable Features Sharing and collaborating across files and folders has been a massive game changer. Also the ability to set Metadata around our content is amazing! • Improvements to My Organization We've realized that instead of a process taking months, such as the verification of a file, it now takes a matter of days or in some cases just hours! • Room for Improvement I would love to see the ability to invite collaborators extended to a file level, not just the folder level. • Use of Solution Since 2013 • Deployment Issues No, the Box staff helped answer all manner of questions! • Stability Issues None, very stable. • Scalability Issues It is easily scalable, we started with a few users and worked our way up. Only minor changes to our folder structures...
